Independently Bottled For Costco

I'm not implying anything negative by this (yet), but word on the street is that Bruichladdich master Jim McEwan has some serious business on the West Coast next week.  I was invited to meet with him in SF on Monday afternoon, but when I asked if he was available Tuesday I was told, "he has to go to Livermore to meet with the heads from Costco."  What in the heck does Costco want with Islay's most indie of whiskies?  More importantly, will Costco be willing to bring in products specifically for single stores?  Are they going to make him mass produce super-sized, Costco quantity casks?  I'm very curious to find out more about this development.

Costco has carried Bruichladdich before so...

True, but I wonder what warrants him flying out to meet with them

October 21, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

no doubt a sign of the apocalypse

that said I bought a case of 'laddie 12 a few years ago when costco had it for $52/ea

I remember getting Oban there for $30/ea like 5 years ago. Should have bought a case. Of course, maybe it will be counterfeit Chinese O-ban??

I know they're not huge producers, but perhaps their demand is suffering and their inventory is rising? I'm curious to see if their products pop up at Costco in the near future.
